Is it possible to open remote file in internal editor using commands?
I want to add a button to toolbar that opens remote file for editing without changing the currently opened path.

Do you mean a "custom command"?

Yes, but in a new instance of WinSCP only. Use a custom command like:

cmd /c start "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe" !S /edit "/path/to/file"

Alternatively use Files > New > File (Shift+F4) and type a path to the file. It will be kept in an edit history, so you can easily look it up in the future.
